That... doesn't look normal. I've seen scratching, but not like that.
I'd clean the bore of the gun very well, look for anything sticking out or something that feels rough with your finger. Clean the spring very well, look at it. Then, try to file off the high spots on the bolt very carefully (try not to get into the o-ring area) and lube that part of the bolt generously (not too much though) and also the rubber face of the bolt.
It is true that all bolts scratch, just some more than others. But that just looks, weird.
ALSO: make sure you are putting your spring in the correct way. There is a right and a wrong way to put the spring in... and that can cause more scratching.
